When it comes to diabetes self-management, using a cookbook can be your ally to help you plan meals and eat healthfully. Meet The Budget-Friendly Fresh and Local Diabetes Cookbook by Charles Mattocks, a celebrity chef and diabetes advocate who has Type 2 diabetes. Charles’ inspiration for this cookbook was to create something that “could meet people where they are and appeal to many cultures.” It was also important that the recipes in his book be affordable, as he knows that many people are on budgets, and finding healthy recipes that taste good and won’t break the bank can often be a challenge.
Not much of a cook? Frustrated with not being able to find special ingredients? No worries. Charles has included recipes that, as he puts it, “have only a few simple ingredients that won’t be so daunting for those who may not be the best at following complicated recipes.” He adds, “this allows you to be able to shop for a few things and not have to go hunting for something that you have to visit a special store to purchase.”
Wondering what kind of recipes you’ll find in this cookbook? How do “Sweet and Smoky Baked Eggs,” “Fiesta Fish Tacos,” and “Tropical Fruit Mousse” sound? Whether you’re following a Paleo or plant-based diet, you’ll find healthy, tasty recipes that fit both your eating plan and your budget. As Charles puts it, “The Budget-Friendly Fresh and Local Diabetes Cookbook is full of amazing, healthy, and great-tasting recipes for all cultures and all peoples.”
Now that’s a cookbook you’ll want to add to your collection!
